Standard First Aid + CPR Certification

Part of my 100 Things Challenge: I've been certified in standard first aid and CPR a couple of times in my life for different reasons I can't recall. I know I was a teenager when I took my last course. I feel this challenge is an important one that everyone should do; you might be able to save the life of a loved one some day.
